My Guide to the Indie Black Friday Booksale!

My Guide to the Indie Black Friday Booksale!

So I’ve been a bit M.I.A. lately due to flu and holiday season, but I’m popping in to let you know…


This year there are over 600 titles for free and $0.99, and yes, I’m freaking out. πŸ˜‰

Historically, I’ve picked up a lot of good books through this sale, and a ton of my most recommended books (everything by Hope Ann, Gift from the Storm, etc.), as well as a few popular series I haven’t tried yet (Ilyon Chronicles and Blades of Acktar, anyone?), are available, so definitely scroll through.

(A few authors like myself might be offering discounted paperbacks through their own sites, I hear. πŸ‘€)

Below are just a few recommendations to get you started (but also go buy all the books that I’m always title-dropping), and then I’m sharing my personal shopping list. πŸ˜‰

(Prices aren’t live yet! And these are not affiliate links.)

The Kate Reading Fiend Recommends…

Two of my new favorite finds this year Should We Tell Her? by Lillian Keith and The Toymaker’s Doll by E.G. Bella, both perfect for all ages.

This humorous and sweet fairytale retelling, A Twist of Adventure by Kendra E. Ardnek (and she has a ton more ENTIRE SERIESES I didn’t know about that I simply must try someday?!!)

I know I’m constantly talking about Hope Ann’s fairytale retelling, but you must simply check out her empathy-superhero standalone Healer’s Bane.

And of course, the first five books in the Kate’s Case Files series by Sarah Holman (there’s even a Christmas one). Perfectly bingeable for winter break. *wink, wink*

The Perry Kirkpatrick’s pen name’s mermaid trilogy with mental health rep, and deep things, and ADORABLE SHIP. Ahem.

Also, of course, all The Accidental Cases of Emily Abbott by Perry Kirkpatrick, particularly the darling Christmas special. πŸ˜‰

The Kate Shopping Fiend Is Eyeing…

So I actually already have a copy of The Blue of Torches: Ignited by C.R. Kelchner cause we know the author and bought a paperback during release week, but I convinced the author to join so just had to mention this here. πŸ˜‰

I read the short story version of Last Wish by Valerie Howard when it first released but it looks like she expanded it into a novel??! More to love, I guess, so I’ll be checking this out. πŸ˜‰

I somehow missed getting this book (take my superfan card) and want to read the next of Hope Ann’s Legends of Light, so I’m going to fix this oversight.

I really enjoyed my first Mrs. Meade Mystery by Elisabeth Grace Foley, so I’ll definitely be buying another one or three. πŸ˜‰

Ahhhhhhh, literally one of my most anticipated new releases of all time, and I was super surprised to see it show up on the sale this year. I. will. be. snagging. πŸ‘

Whether or not any of these books are up your alley, there’s really something for everyone (including all my books) so off you browse! (HERE)

Happy reading!
